The Bomb — Bomber Jackets

I love me a bomber. I really do. Don’t get me started on this dreamy Acne bomber. *Swoon* I wanted to shake things up a bit, so recently picked up this Alpha bomber from ASOS. I love the longline length, and I do wax nostalgic with Alpha jackets, as I used to wear vintage parkas from Alpha back in the 90s.

I have a store credit so I’ve been trying to find an item that I really like that doesn’t go over the top budget-wise.
